    tim, I have no soupmails or member area, and I can't post poems or comments to blogs. Is it the same for you? I just noticed this coming back here after 11 p.m but I can see a few people have the ability to do blogs still. Did you send me another soupmail since the last one I responded to this afternoon? If so, could you just give me the message in a comment box of one of my old poems. thanks so much. Luv, andrea

    Comes from actually believing man is bequeathed dominion [we believe our own press LOL] this is 1 thought, 1 gramatical phrase it must be a visual or sensory fact to be a haiku this is a subjective statement..[meaning your opinion aye? mine TOO..but still unless you are really writing about a peacock you saw you have left haiku-land ;) entering free Verse land ] Light & Love
